Super Saving Saturday, Stocking Up to Get Through the Week

We are continuing our bathroom remodel and that is taking up more of my free time. We are trying to do most of the work ourselves to help save money. So, I didn’t have extra time to run to too many stores this week.

I did manage to get out to two though. I couldn’t pass up the good deal on cherries at Fred Meyer. I’m going to dry or freeze some of them and we will be eating the rest. Today’s the last day of the sale at Fred Meyer so if you want some be sure to make the trip today!

Winco Foods Shopping Trip


I spent a little more this week than I would have liked to at Winco Foods. I could have went to one of the discount grocery stores and done a little better on price, but then I would have had to make it out to more stores. It was worth it to me this week to save more time than a little bit of money this week.

  1. As I sit here thinking over my week, I don’t remember leaving the house. 😉 My husband did recently find a good deal on cherries, too, and picked up two bags from Whole Foods.

    I hope you bathroom remodel goes well this upcoming week, Shelly!

    1. I love to have weeks where I don’t have to leave the house. I’m such a homebody. This is the time of year for great cherry deals isn’t?!

      Our vanity is almost done. I’m amazed at how a little paint and a new countertop and a few hinges can change the whole look. I’ll be posting soon about how the vanity turned out. Then we take on the floor. 🙂

  2. My best deals this week were 2 bottles of Tropicana Farmstand juice for $.97 each and 2 boxes of Gogurt for $.75 each. I did pay a little more for milk, butter and some fruit because I didn’t want to take the time to go to multiple stores, but it was worth it.
